USNPS: Most NPs will close during shutdown

The majority of the country’s national parks will close and be made off-limits to the public if the federal government shuts down, the U.S. Department of the Interior announced on Friday, a move that is likely to upend travel plans for millions of visitors to some of the country’s most popular attractions.

“Gates will be locked, visitor centers will be closed, and thousands of park rangers will be furloughed,” the agency said in a statement announcing its plans to wind down operations at hundreds of sites, from icons like Yosemite to modest historical sites.
